Hey there friends!! Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Is it your first time? Did you just find out? Well, I’m here for you! I am sharing a very simple and budget friendly Thanksgiving tablescape with you!

I have shared several fall tables over the years which I will link at the bottom of this post. All are a little different but all fun and festive for sure!
Today’s table is brought to by nature, Hobby Lobby, and Dollar Tree.

I started with a neutral background with my dropcloth tablecloth that I made years ago. Canvas dropcloths are a great weight and depending on the size of your table, you may or may not need to cut it down and hem it.

Next up – these fun wicker placemats/chargers. I bought mine on clearance this summer at Hobby Lobby. But I found these that are similar – maybe a little lighter. And there are these that are even lighter which would also be pretty.

Next, my go to white plates from Dollar Tree. (Did you know you can order from Dollar Tree online? You can even pick up in a store near you!  This time I used the dinner plates, and the salad plates with a fall colored napkin sandwiched in between. The glasses are also from Dollar Tree – they may not have this exact design anymore but they have plenty of other choices.

The napkins are from At Home, again on clearance a few years back. They are more of a rusty mustard color than it’s coming across. Here is a similar version for a great price and several color options to choose from.
I decided to tie the silverware together with this fun ric-rac ribbon from Hobby Lobby just to add a little fun and interest to the plate.

For the centerpiece, I went outside and clipped a few branches of our trees with some lovely fall colors. Today, as I type this, almost all the leaves are gone because the wind is literally howling outside. 🙁 If you don’t have any actual leaves when Thanksgiving rolls around you can get this same look with faux.

Just pile the leaves on, really with or without the branches works. Then, I added a cute little basket (similar) with some mini white pumpkins, and a few more small white pumpkins – all faux from Hobby Lobby, since it can be hard to find pumpkins closer to Thanksgiving, or hard to keep them alive that long.

And there you have it! Super simple and super budget friendly. We have hosted Thanksgiving for several years now, so I am always keeping my eyes open for clearance items that I can use to make the tables cute for the family. I chose the white plates in the beginning because they were inexpensive, I could use them with any other decor I chose, and I knew I would be able to add more over the years if I needed to.
